    Aalesund, winter wonder land? Nearly a meter of snow in a few days this week, then back to +8-10C later today. If that is followed by frost it could get interesting.

    This weekend (Friday 23) it is 102 years since the big fire in Aalesund destroyed the central parts of the town.
    As usual this will be "celebrated" with a mach around to the various places in town with a special historical significance from that night. The forecast is for nice but very cold weather, but that does not stop the enthusiasts and patriots in Aalesund from attending.

    Sunnmorsposten mark the occasion by updating material issued for the 100th anniversary and have created an Apps (of cause): http://bybrann.smp.no/

    Aalesund is widely known as the the most beautiful and architectonically interesting town in Norway, but is it in danger of loosing this status: http://www.smp.no/meninger/kronikk/2...t-11873300.ece

    Any opinions among the CVF members with knowledge of, or connection with, Aalesund??

    The "Super Tide" peaked in Aalesund without any drama.
    Here is a picture series to prove it: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2015/11/14...e-11808780.ece

    But somebody decided that it was a god time for a swim in Brosundet: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2015/11/14...g-11811119.ece

    PS> I served as Navigator on an American Supply boat by the name "Super Tide" back in 1970.

    The RS building (Redningsselskapet - the Norwegian rescue vessel company) can soon have their rescue boats tie up at the front door!
